mweb Posted March 28, 2010 Share Posted March 28, 2010 One positive of giving Hernandez a chance in the rotation to the start the year is we'd get a better idea of what his role should be going forward. We already know what Tillman's role will be, and he'll get that chance this year regardless of who's in the rotation to start the year. Well unless there's no injuries and everyone pitches well, which would be a nice and very rare problem to have. So if Hernandez looks a lot better now than he did last year, and better than Tillman, letting him carry that momentum into the season would be fine imo. If he shows he can be a good starter, then that's one more good young starter added to the cavalry. So next year we can have Matutz, BB, Tillman, Hernandez, and Arrieta/Erbe/Patton/Britton or a vet. If he struggles, than bring up Tillman and put DH in the pen. So giving Hernandez a chance could turn out to be better for the present and the future. I'm failing to see the big negatives that it would bring as well. Either way, I'll be fine with the decision. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
